https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MITSUBISHI-l200-PAJERO-SHOGUN-SPORT-3-0-PETROL-V6-24V-6G72-ENGINE-2001/183063035520?epid=1722867438&hash=item2a9f683e80:g:144AAOSw-RFafH~w,

Has anybody replaced the deisel 4D56 engine for one of the these the V6 petrol? will it go on the same engine mounts? Attach to the same bell housing, the same spacing etc,

Thanks,

Craig

I can imagine it being rather complex. Swapping the engine is one thing, but there will be the bell housing (I think your starter motor is on other side) or even the whole gearbox, radiator, ECU and probably the whole wiring loom to contend with as well. You will need an exhaust fabricating as the shogun Manifolds are different to the L200 V6, which are like rocking horse poo to find. But to what advantage?

The V6 will be faster at the top end, that's if you fancy hurtling away at 115mph in something not exactly designed for a racing track. Fuel cost on petrol is terrible: 15mpg around town, about 22mpg on a run. However looking at the picture on your link, it appears to have the LPG conversion, so there's the tank and all the other gubbins to transfer as well.

Although the manufacturers data quotes a greater power output than any of the diesels, remember this is taken around 5000 revs. In top gear that would again equate to 100+mph. If you are towing ie. less than 60mph there isn't much torque available when you hit the hills.

And the insurance will no doubt go up considerably.

My only reason for choosing the V6 was for the ability to run on LPG. At current prices, a 60ltr tank full gets me about 180miles and costs about £35.00

(all figures approximated before somebody starts quoting the book at me).

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but I do speak with some experience.

Donít apologize thats what I was after. I would only do it if the swap was easy and I didnít think it would be. Itís only my plodder iím not really bothered about the speed thing iíll put the same in again. Iíll strip the old one out and asses the damage then start from there. Thanks for your reply,
Craig.

no swap is easy, the V6's and 4M engines, (2.8, 3.2) and the 2.5 all have different bellhousings, mounts, control systems, anciliaries etc, its not a land rover,

there  is a page called mitsubishi conversions on facebook where us naughty engine swappers hide

minimum cost is about 2k in parts for a 4m40 or 200tdi

its been done, its not a case of will it fit,  its a case of what trans are you using, auto or manual, clutch choice, and money. 1UZ's are very common as they get 15-20mpg rather tnan 6
